Hi Neils,

Right now we're in the exploratory phase for what SCIM would look like within
Grouper. Would we, for instance replace the SPML in the PSP with SCIM or
just make a module that would do basically SPML -> SCIM -> downstream

This is being presently tracked at

As we have not established a clear goal for SCIM we do not yet have any
timeline around implementation.
